PhD position in Cognitive Neuroscience / Visual Psychophysics -
University Osnabrück, Germany
The research group for Neurobiopsychology (Prof. Dr. Peter König
http://www.cogsci.uni-osnabrueck.de/~NBP/) has two vacancies for
positions of a PHd student. (Scholarships are for a maximum of three
years, to start at November 1st, 2008. ) The positions involve research
within the Research Training Group Adaptivity in Hybrid Cognitive
Systems (http://www.cogsci.uos.de/PhD/GK) in the area of processing of
visual, auditory and tactile information and sensorimotor integration
under natural conditions and includes the statistical analysis of
natural stimuli, simulation of multimodal sensory systems, integration
of experimental data on the neuronal activity with visual and auditory
stimulation and the implementation on autonomous systems. Furthermore,
the position involves participation in teaching Cognitive Science
courses with an emphasis on Neurobiopsychology. The position offers the
possibility of further academic qualification.
The Research Training Group is associated with the Institute of
Cognitive Science and research groups from the Institutes of Informatics
and Psychology. It includes research groups in Artificial Intelligence,
Computational Linguistics, Neurobiopsychology, Neuroinformatics,
Philosophy of Cognition, Knowledge Based Systems, and Differential
Psychology. The Institute of Cognitive Science at the University of
Osnabrück is one of the largest European centres in Cognitive Science,
offering degree programmes for BSc, MSc, and PhD in Cognitive Science
and carries out research on a broad range of cognitive processes. The
Research Training Group Adaptivity in Hybrid Cognitive Systems combines
a curricular PhD study programme with an interdisciplinary research
programme in Cognitive Science. The language of instruction is English.
Candidates are expected to have a university degree (diploma/Master or
PhD) and a good research record in at least one of the following areas:
Computer simulation of neuronal systems, electrophysiology, and visual
psychophysics, as well as a good command of the English language.
The University of Osnabrück strives to increase the number of women in
research and teaching. Women are therefore explicitly encouraged to
apply. Applications with the usual documentation should be submitted no
later than 18. July 2008 to the Director of the Institute of Cognitive
Science, University of Osnabrück, Albrechtstraße 28, 49076 Osnabrück.
Further information can be obtained from Prof. Dr. Peter König,
